It doesn't do anything particularly new in terms of gameplay, but it's a fun and streamlined multiplayer shooter you can obtain without leaving your console. The first time you play Battlefield 1943, you may not believe it's a downloadable game. It really looks great, with impressive lighting effects and lots of detail on every map. There are some little glitches here and there, such as a tendency to fall through the ground when you are killed. But you'll find these easy to overlook and more likely be astonished that this is what a trivial arcade offering has become."
